Vision and Mission

The boat building academy aims to provide professional and immersive training to a team of all walks of life with the common passion for building and making.

To teach men and women to build boats and design and make furniture of the highest quality to accepted industry standards using traditional and modern methods and materials, thus enabling our students to fully realise their potential

At the Lyme Regis Boat Building Academy, we are passionate about and committed to providing high quality training and the development of skills in traditional wooden boatbuilding, drawing upon the strong heritage of this craft and industry from the UK and across the world. Maintaining and enhancing these heritage skills and passing them on to future generations via our students, underpins what we do and also helps place the more modern boat building techniques we also teach, within their historical context.
